Mojo Monday 207

Hi Folks,   I am still here.   Just trying to get things settled on the closing date for my Grandparents and get them in their new place.    So happy for them to be able to get in their own routine and new home. It has been a long time coming.   Once the closing date happens then I have to fly to NY meet with the movers, the realtor, shut down utilities, dis-enroll them in what is called the "Star" program etc etc.  Busy Busy but I am sure I can squeeze in a few for the city :)

So since I will be flying to NY soon I have been really excited about the fall weather I will get to enjoy.   So for this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge I decided to do a fall card.  Hope you like and thanks for stopping by :)

Meet the KinderStampO Guest Design Team Blog Hop

I am overjoyed with excitement!   Some of you have seen me mention a blog that I follow called KinderStampO.   I have been following Jess for about a year now.   She is such a great teacher and what I like most about her blog are the video demostrating's on various techniques.   I can tell you hands down she has taught me at least 10 different techniques.   Jess also has a super cute stamp/embellishment line.  Recently there was a calling for a Guest spot on the Design Team and I am thrilled to say that I was one of the lucky ones chosen.

Tonight to introduce the Guest Design Team we are holding a short quaint little blog hop.  The deets are below on how to get entered and win some blog candy!  Stop on over to the KinderStampO Facebook page and let them know I sent you and/or leave a comment on each of the guest designers blogs (including mine).  You have between 6:30-9:30 pm. One lucky winner will win a prize from KinderStampO.  Your next stop is the talented Wee Choo Bin.

Please feel free to check out some of my previous posts if you are new to my blog.  Thanks for playing along and stay tuned to see the wonderful projects that Jess will have us creating.

SSSC #133

Most of us woman are aware that October is  Breast Cancer Awareness Month.   For this week's "the sweetest thing sketch challenge", I made this pretty pink card.  This card along with 7 others is being donated to an upcoming event for the Compassionate Hands and Hearts Foundation.  Vanessa Echols founded this organization and is a local news woman who survived breast cancer.  This year her organization is holding  the  Galerie de Rose. The event is being held at one of our local assisted living facilities auctioning an art gallery full of donated items.  I am honored to be a part of this event. 

If you are interested in attending and are local follow the link above and remember "Get em squished." :)

SSSC #132

Still learning and practicing, practicing, practicing with my copics. Worked a little on hair but still need more practice :)   I did the card below for this week's "the sweetest thing sketch challenge", I was able to pair one of the verses from the inkadinkado stamp set- Tell it like it is with a S.W.A.L.K set called Kiss. Of course I had to use my MFT dienamics Rolled Roses again!  I know its a little late in the week but stop by and check out the other crafter's projects and possibly play along.  There are a lot of great "enspiring ideas."
